Management Zone

Management Zone: Introduction

Managing a company requires more than just specialist sector knowledge. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, owner-managers need to have a much wider understanding of management issues, including how best to manage resources, people and money.

The Management Zone aims to provide you with a summary of key information and management tools that you and your business will need to know about in order to survive and grow.

This section of our website will give you a basic overview of the following areas, which are fundamental to running any type of business:

  • Human resources – including contracts of employment, employer duties and health and safety.
  • Business law – including company formation, getting paid and company/competition law.
  • Business strategy and planning – including writing a business plan, buying and selling a company and raising finance.
  • Charities – including the tax rules relating to charitable giving, trusteeship and the Charities Act.
